U U THE ftAFTSfflAR' TIIE PERILS OF TOE BORDER. "While reading recently aa account of the i rightful massacre of several white families by the Black-foot Indians, we were reminded of a thrilling event which occurre d in the "Wild West," a short time subsequent to the Revo lution, in which a highly accomplished young lady, the daughter of a distinguished officer of the American Army, played an important part. The story being of a most thrilling nature,and exhibiting in a striking manner the 'Perils of the Border," we have concluded to give an extract from it, as originally published, as fol lows : The anglo on the right bank of the Great Kanawha, formed bv its junction with the O hio, Is called Point Pleasant, and is a place of historical note. Here, on trie 10th ol Octo ber. 1774, durins what is known as Lord Dun more's War. was fought of the fiercest aud most desperate battles that ever took place be tween the V irgmians and their Iocs.

Raftsman's ionnmL 1 'J - ur S. B. KOW, EDITOR AND PROFWETOR. CLEARFIELD, PA., .MAY 20, 1S5S. The Fctcre op Parties, is a question that is now engaging the attention of many. Pol itics have been so sadly "out of joint" during the last three years that no one was able to foresee very long what was to come next. The slavery issue, however, springing cp in a new form, had the effect of converging matters to some extent, and finally the action of Presi dent Buchanan, and those who pledged Lira to be in favor of "Free Kansas," in forcing thro' the Lecompton swindle, in tho shape of the English bill, has drawn them to a complete fo cus. The local elections recently held plain ly indicate that a large majority of the people in the North are opposed in sentiment to the policy of the Administration, and that there is a strong disposition on the part of the Ke publicars, Americans and Anti-Lccompton Democrats to form themselves into one great, national. Datriotic party organization. A movement...

Quito a Dumber of inquiries have been recently made of us con cerning the militia law passed at the late ses sion of the Pennsylvania Legislature. It entirely too long for publication in a newspa per, bat as it is printed in pamphlet form, it Trill doubtless be widely circulated. By its provisions every able-bodied man between the ages of twenty-one and forty-live, and not ex empted by the laws of the United States, with certain specified exceptions, is required to perform military duty. The assessors of the several wards, boroughs aud townships, are re' quired to enroll all such, and to assess a tax of fifty cents upon all who are not exempt from the performance of military duty. This tax of fifty cents is to be collected . in the same manner and at the same time other taxes are collected in the several counties ; and is to be paid into the county treasury as a military fund...
